RE: YouTube videos-overlay-creator in box reviewing his desktop- how???

I just don't know where to post this so here it is. I don't yet have Premiere but will if it can do what I want. What I want to do is what I see often in YouTube videos-where the content creator is seen in a box, often at the corner, while they are reviewing something on their desktop- such as a document or photo or video or whatever. Kinda like what you can see and do with Zoom. I have Cyberlink Powerdirector 17 and asked in their forum but a moderator was rude and unhelpful so that makes me consider getting Premiere Pro. That moderator said it can be done just with a screen savor. He didn't say how and the screen savor that comes with the Cyberlink editing program isn't working on this 8 year old Dell desktop XPS so I can't experiment with it. I don't think this "trick" is done simply with a screen savor. So, if this is a bad place to ask this question- where can I go? I have posted a similar question in the YouTube forum- got no response.

You can use free OBS to setup a 'scene' where you capture from multiple sources and record. So you can have the app capture the screen of a monitor or specific app, and capture the image from a webcam setup. Resize the webcam via the "filters" options for that item in OBS so that it's small and in a corner.

 

Now ... that is a single recording, you can't edit later as to whether the little webcam image is included or not. A limitation of OBS.

 

Camtasia has the ability to record multiple things at once, put them all on a timeline on separate tracks. So in editing you can set the properties for a track and of course change as you go through the timeline.

 

You can try also using free OBS to capture the screen of the app you're working in, while using a camera that actually writes the image to card as your 'webcam'. Then take both recordings into Premiere and do your editing, including adding/sizing/locating the 'webcam' image as you wish.

Neil, excuse my getting dense in my old age. I used to be fairly sophisticated with computers- but doing what I asked about is only slowly sinking in. I think I get it now- with a screen recorder (I stupidly said screen savor in my first post)- it can capture from my webcam and whatever is on my desktop (a document, photo, video, online source, whatever) at the same time. It seems obvious now- but for some reason I had trouble understanding this. Something like this was explained to me by others but not as well as your description. I have Cyberlink Powerdirector which comes with a screen recorder but it's not working with my 8 year old Dell XPS desktop. Apparently, it was suggested, I need to upgrade the video driver but I hesitate because I fear such an upgrade my mess up the computer. I was once fearless doing such upgrades but not any more. I have too much important stuff on this system. I'll be buying a new PC soon and hopefully it'll work well with screen recorders. Supposedly, the screen recorder that came with Cyberlink can call up the webcam video- and thus record that plus the desktop which is the goal. When I get the new PC I'll also either buy the latest Cyberlink or move up to Premiere-a more costly but more professional program. So, Premiere does not come with a screen recorder? Thanks!

Nope, Premiere doesn't do screen recordings.
